Good Lord. Have I died and crossed over to the Promised Land???????? This place was rockin' and rollin' and I cannot wait to go back!!! I saw the menu and swooned....so many of my favorite foods from around the world! It was so hard to choose! NOT. Tim Bocholis, the oh-so-talented chef, came out to check in with the diners, a gesture which I dearly appreciate. And come to find out, he's worked at Jaleo AND Zaytinya in Washington DC, two of the best restaurants on the planet! The restaurant itself is really adorable (a bit of a problem with limited parking) and our server very friendly and totally familiar with each dish. I think now my plan is to route ALL trips through Kernersville so I have an excuse to dine here as often as I can. This is a GEM of a restaurant!

My wife and I recently bought a Groupon for Bistro B and we couldn't have been more pleased. First off it is located conveniently in downtown Kernersville in a quaint little alley. The first thing we noticed is that the staff are very friendly and helpful in walking you through the menu options, helping you decide what you may enjoy the most and being attentive. The food here is excellent and always changing. We ordered the cheese sampler platter, lamb empanadas, the white salad and papas bravas which are spicy-perfectly-cooked potatoes. We finished with some great coffee and fried bananas with vanilla bean ice cream. We wanted to try even more options but we will have to come back again.

I recommend that you avoid this place for events. It is unreliable. Tim the owner/chef completely abandoned my party of 12 after agreeing to host my event. I emailed and spoke with Tim on multiple occasions the week leading up to an event lunch on a Saturday. We had agreed to a late lunch at 2:30 for a party of 12 and that we could order off the menu. The day of the event, I called around 11 to switch to takeout and told him in would call in an hour or so to place order. Was told that takeout would be fine, that they were ready for us. I called back at 2:30 sharp to place the order and was informed that the kitchen closed at 2pm and they would not be able to prepare our meal. Tim himself told me that he closed the kitchen at 2pm and sent his staff home. I was left with 12 hungry customers and nowhere to take them at 12:30. Tim offered no apology or reasoning. He said I should have called back sooner. Was informed by the staff at the studio where the group was recording that this was not the first time that this has taken place.

My husband and I had lunch for the first time at Bistro B's yesterday. Our server was Todd and he gave us excellent recommendations. His descriptions sounded more like poetry than menu options. We noticed right away that there were no salt and pepper shakers on any table. We laughed and said, "they must think their food is seasoned to perfection". Well, they were right. Everything we ate was delicious as served. We started with a 3 cheese selection that also came with fresh fig puree, honey, grapes, olives and marinated garlic cloves, that were delectable. My husband got a seafood dish with the freshest fish stock we've ever tasted. Ironically, it wasn't fishy at all, hint save some of the bread to dip. The dish had sweet scallops, mussels, calamari and shrimp. I got the shaved lamb gyro. This was not your average lamb/beef pressed meat. This was wonderfully seasoned and tender lamb with feta and caramelized onions with a side of pomme frites. We ate every bite and ordered the crème brulee with coffee and cappuccino. I recommend this dining experience to anyone that is not afraid to try something different. We love Kernersville, but while you dine here, you will forget you are in a small town. This is a lovely spot that should not be missed!

This is a great restaurant. One of few in this area that can compete with best in major urban centers. A truly unique menu, with interesting dishes of Spanish and Mediterranian flavors. Many are tapa-sized, and tapa-priced, so you can try 2 or 3; that's the whole idea. It's for diners with an adventuresome palate. Excellent wines, excellent service, and in the heart of charming K-ville to boot.

Every time when we go out to eat to this place we get great service and excellent food. Last time we had clams and my husband had stake, and was absolutely delicious. Yes, may be you don't get too big portion, but it is really enough considering pretty cheap price for the quality of food you get. The chef came out and asked our opinion about service and food, he was very pleasant. I would recommend this place to someone who can appriciate quality of food and pleasant atmosphere: the servers don't really bother you unless you call them.

This place is horrible! A friend of my sister and I had bought a groupon for 4 to eat here and we will never go back! We had previously made a reservation and when we arrived, the hostess gave our table away to someone else just because they knew the owner. As we were waiting an extra 30 min for another table, we noticed some "photos" of the owner/chef with celebrities (Bobby Flay was one of them). I started to admire them when I noticed that all of them looked as if he was photoshopped into the photos. As a trained photographer, I am almost positive they were. When we were finally seated, we were given a table against the wall. Not that there's a problem with that, except for that the tables were so close together we were packed in like sardines! Noise level was awful. When we saw the table we asked the hostess if it would be possible to sit at a table we noticed that had a little more room and she said "Oh, no that table is for our regular customers..", as if we were the reject customers that were being punished. All we needed were dunst hats and we would have been all set! The waiter was the only saving grace of the evening as he was very polite. We felt horrible for him because the chef/owner was fussing at him for making a mistake out in front of all the customers which is highly unprofessional (mind you he was waiting tables as well. Are they understaffed? Hmmm wonder why that is...). The food just wasn't that great and the portions were not large enough for what is considered a high class meal. At one point the chef/owner was trying to get through the crowd to some of the tables and acted like he was angry and my friend because she was in his way. We were so packed in she couldn't scoot in any further and he had a bit of an attitude about it. To top it off while we were waiting for our check to come back to sign, the hostess asked us if we were waiting for something as if it was a problem we were still there. Didn't even give us the right check in the end! The owner is just way in over his head and with his boisterous and "full of myself" attitude, I just see this place not lasting. It is a cute place that has lots of potential. Sad.
